Suspected billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, a.k.a Evans, has asked the Lagos Federal High court to grant him bail.


Evans and his accomplices in October at the Ikeja High Cour had made a u-turn and pleaded not guilty to a two-count charge of kidnapping and conspiracy preferred against them by the Lagos State government.

The government had on August 30,2017 arraigned Evans alongside Uche Amadi, Ogechi Uchechukwu, Okwuchukwu Nwachukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi and Victor Aduba before Justice Hakeem Oshodi of an Ikeja High Court, where three of them pleaded guilty, except Uchechukwu, the only female defendant, Ifeanyi and Aduba who pleaded not guilty.However there was a mild drama while the prosecution was being re-arraigned on an amended charge yesterday, Evans and co-defendants changed their plea. In the amended charge, the defendants, who were remanded in prison by the court after the earlier arraignment are still facing a two-count charge offence bordering on conspiracy and kidnapping.
